As your photographer, I consider our entire time together all part of the photographer/client experience–one of which I want you to enjoy every part of. Starting from the time you first come across my Instagram account or website, to our first email interaction, then onto our session together, and finally within the relationship we have even after our session together. Because it is so important to me that you have best experience possible with me, I have carefully tried to consider every detail of our time together. This includes the sights, sounds, and smells of your session. For this reason, I have put together a playlist of songs that help you (and your littles) relax in front of the camera so you can focus on what is most important, which is your family.
